I have rust in my car and under the bottom. Cadillac states this is normal and they cannot do anything until there is a hole in the vehicle. They rely on the dealers feedback. The district manager in the area is of no use. The dealer over rides his decisions. What does GMC paid this fellow for?

Purchased a new vehicle that had an odd smell, but soon became overpowered with its strong odor. Consumer's wife eyes watered from the smell and her throat burned. Took vehicle to dealer for who tried to remedy the problem by placing odor eaters inside of the trunk from where the smell was strongest. The odor was stronger when vehicle was outside in heat or hot weather. Consumer was concerned that this may be toxic. The problem was ongoing. Contacted GM, but they did not answer the concerns. Vehicle continued to smell of odors. Front passenger side seat was squeaking with side to side motion. Front seat adjuster assembly replaced.
